UWB Tracking System for Elderly People Monitoring (Internship/ Diploma Thesis)



With the world population aging at a fast rate, ambient assisted living systems focused on elderly people gather more attention. Human activity recognition (HAR) is a component connected to those systems, as it allows identification of the actions performed and their utilization on behavioural analysis. We propose in the context of this internship to build a non-intrusive solution,  based on UWB, to monitor old people motion and detect possible anomalous situations, which could be a sign of the next onset of chronic illness or initial physical and cognitive decline..

In this role

The objectives of this internship include:

  • Take the ownership on our existing digital health IoT platform
  • Develop and deploy acquisition modules for UWB systems. Modules are deployed to an on-premise gateway (e.g. raspberry)
  • Extend the platform to implement UWB sensors management and data pre-processing
  • Build models to detect and notify deviation in the evolution of people behavior
  • Extend the platform with business apps to interact with care staff, e.g. visualization of movements and alerting.

What we offer

Join our team as intern and you will find a young, dynamic and culturally diverse working environment.
